North Riverside Parks & Recreation

The season may bring cooler temperatures but the Parks & Recreation Department always spices things up with its annual Autumn Fest! There will be tons to do! We will have our scarecrow contest, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon artist, music by Libido Funk Circus, inflatables, pumpkin decorating (if available), and so much more!
PLUS! Don’t miss the Chili Cook-off among Village Departments, local civic groups, churches and schools. (Sorry, no individual entries will be accepted.) The traveling Chili Cup will be awarded by professional judges and a People’s Choice trophy will be awarded to the chili that earns the most popular votes. There is even a Jr. Chef Award for the best chili made by our youth organizations.
Food and beverage tickets will be available for purchase in advance beginning September 6 at the Parks and Recreation Office. Avoid the lines!
